Lower the hopper of the surge bin into the transport position.
Lower the slat conveyor into the transport position (if it Is not in this position).
The power cable to the slat conveyor motor is removed with the slat conveyor. Remove the cable from the
transport holders on the chassis. Loosen or remove any clamps holding the cable to the chassis Coil the cable on
the slat conveyor walkway. This will allow it to be moved with the conveyor.
Disconnect the limit switch wiring in the control box next to the hydraulic pump motor. See the wiring diagram in
Section 3-4-13. Remove the clamps holding the limit switch cable to the chassis and place the cable on the
conveyor so that the cable is removed with the conveyor.
Disconnect the main air line to the conveyor.
The conveyor is lifted with two slings and a crane. See Figure 3-13. Hook up the slings using corner blocks that
will not damage the conveyor.
Remove the shaft from the conveyor pivot mount. The conveyor can be lifted off the surge bin chassis
Lower the conveyor onto saw horses which will support it Do not rest the conveyor on the batcher and the pivot
Remove the fasteners holding the inlet grate in place and the inlet grate.
Remove the bolts holding the slat conveyor back panel
The lower rear panel Is hinged. Remove the two hinge pins at the bottom of this panel and remove the panel.

Each slat is attached to the chain with 12 bolts. Six bolts on each strand of chain. These bolts should be cut off as
they will not be reusable. Use care in cutting the bolts so that the chain is not damaged (If it is not being replaced).
If the chain and slats are being replaced, cut the chain In ten to twelve foot long sections and lift out with a crane.
Before disassembling the chain adjust the screw take ups so that the chain is as slack as possible. If
disassembling the chain between two idlers, use a come-along and pull the slats together on either side of the
point that Is being
